Consumer review (newegg.com)

Great unit for specific use cases

 

Updated my review today just to say, this thing has been sitting on a shelf recording video for a while now with not one single problem or reboot. Great little tiny box to set on a shelf and forget. If your space limited, this is for you!

Well built, solid design. Throw in an Intel copy some ram and a 2.5" hdd and your ready to roll. Great for small PC like edu computer lab or kiosks. We use ours as the base of a small Linux based NVR along with a WD red 3tb hdd. Very pleased with the...

None that I can think of. Ok just so I can put something down, it would get 5 eggs if it had a built in case tamper.

Great but remember to upgrade BIOS

 

I got this during last black friday and installed linux with everything working quickly, but it died suddenly one day: likely because I didn't upgrade BIOS. RMAed and working fine now.

Quiet, fast, lots of interfaces including double ethernet ports. RMA process smooth

Wish it had an SPDIF output for my old receiver

Doesn't Get any Better

 

Much of my equipment has been accumulated over the past few years but integrating them into one barebones homebuilt do-it-all computer system was borderline 'bleeding edge' for me. Fortunately, persistence and a good plan actually worked out and that...

I've just finished integrating a Shuttle HX81V HTPC with AT&T High-Speed Interne​t, Netflix, Rhapsody Unlimited Music Library, International Space Station live streaming video, DISH Network Satellite TV, a Toshiba DVD-CD/RW player and an old Zenith VCR...

Too quiet, I thought the fans weren't working and dissembled it to find out I was wronh
